The Barn is part of a farmhouse built at the end of 1800 and recently restored. It is located in an uncontaminated valley full of water and at the foot of the Cornate Park. The farm is surrounded by olive trees, but at a short distance there is also a secular chestnut tree. The family owns oil and chestnut flour. The barn furnishing is in schabby style. The house has an independent outdoor space and is on two floors connected by a spiral staircase for a total of 50 square meters. The water in the house comes from a well. For use in the kitchen and in the bathroom the owners provide free bottles of water to guests.
To get to the house you have to walk 600 meters down the dirt road in the middle of a forest and cross a bridge. By choice of owners there are no television sets and no wifi. But there is also a swing for children and the ability to watch the stars (among other things Gerfalco is recognized as one of the places with less light pollution). In the farmhouse there is a dog and three cats who, however, have no access to the Barn. In any case, you can contact the host for more information about features. The barn has independent access with its outdoor eating area and relax area (with umbrella and armchairs).
We are against the chaos of the city. And we are not even in an overly exploited village for tourist purposes. Here the places have not been contaminated yet, noises and smells are authentic. And nature can express all its energy.
In the High Maremma holidays are never boring. In the area there are many itineraries to do: from the naturalistic ones in the Cornate Regional Reserve to the historic art galleries in San Galgano (the sword in the rock) 14 kilometers and to Massa Marittima with its famous cathedral (15 km). Gerfalco is an hour from Siena (35 km). Hiking and mountain biking are also possible. Gerfalco is also only 40 minutes from the sea (Follonica and the regional reserve of Sterpaia). Other places of interest on the coast: Castiglione della Pescaia (43 km) and Baratti with the Etruscan town of Populonia (41 km).
